"We are so stoked to back out on tour after our longest time off ever doing this new record. Not only are we excited to be out but its our first time headlining in years! Its been a long time coming and because of that we are bringing so much more to these shows. The line up is stacked with great bands and our live show has so many more surprises and new songs.

Auras Releases New Video

Canadian metal act Auras has debuted an all new music video today for the track “Spiral” - check it out below. The band collaborated with producer Ray Ligaya and videographer Andrew Paiano for the project

“'Spiral' is rooted in a melodic theme, yet constantly flows in and out of sporadic aggression similar in nature to our previous releases,” says drummer Nathan Bulla.

This is the second video the band has released off latest LP "Heliospectrum" that came out late last year. Bulla goes on to say, "The visualization reflects a struggle with the unknown and unusual, leaving those conflicted with a sense of delusional hopelessness towards an ideal resolve."

Auras Streaming "Infinite Influence"

Canadian progressive metal band Auras has released a new track titled "Infinite Influence" from the group's new LP "Heliospectrum" that is due out later this month.

"We wanted to tell a story with Infinite Influence using an ascending rhythmic arrangement that maneuvers into different dimensions paired with equal movements in melody," says drummer Nathan Bulla. "The inclusion of a guest guitar solo from our good friend Aaron Marshall attempts to pull the listener in at a pinnacle part in the journey only to be supervened in a destructive conclusion which returns to the initial theme, bringing an air of the darker 'Crestfallen' EP sound back into play.

"As for our upcoming tour with Toothgrinder, we are thrilled to be supporting the release of Heliospectrum with a band that shares a similar vision for relentless movement and organized recklessness, and can't wait to bring the lively energy of these songs to stage!"
